Geocaching NSW events

2014 Christmas Event

An enthusiastic group of geocachers enjoyed coming together at Putney for the 6th annual Geocaching NSW Christmas Party. As usual, there was lots of great chat about many aspects of the game we all really enjoy playing. We welcomed familiar faces and it was fabulous to see some new players joining us for their first geocaching event.

The first game of the day was a “nearest to the ammo can” mint tin throw. Each player had three goes to try to be the closest. Competition was fierce with Kid Ron Satan taking out this year’s title. For his efforts he received a 50 cal. ammo can. Hopefully, there’s a new cache coming out soon. Congratulations KRS.

The second competition was to see how tall mint tins could be stacked in 30 seconds. Again, this was highly competitive with junior Team MavEtJu coming up the winner. Well done!

The Geocache of the Year was announce by President Zalgariath. The voting was very close with “GCHFT2 Earthcache 1 – A simple Geology Tour of Wasp Head” being crowned this year’s winner. This is very fitting as this earthcache was the first one published anywhere in the world and celebrated 10 years of finds back in January this year. Congratulations to the cache owner, Geoaware.

The final presentation was to award the official FTF for the event. Congratulation to Mr Roo who travelled to the event by train from the Central Coast. He took home a 30 cal. Ammo can as his prize.

Thanks to events maestro, Calypso62, for all the work to organise the day and special thanks to to all the geocachers who attended and made the event another successful one for the Association.

A Merry Geocaching Christmas to all and we look forward to more fantastic events in 2015.
